Booked a weekend stay through IHG, and found this HIE well sited and clean. It has everything you need and nothing you don't for a weekend spent out seeing the sights. The AC, tv, and all doors and windows worked, the bed was comfortable, the linens clean, and there was no traffic noise at all. I did have only soft pillows the first night, but asked for a couple of firm ones at the desk in the morning and they were waiting for me that night. I had a side room, but still had a balcony and a view of both the water and across the island. The only really odd thing was checkout- I had to leave a 5am Monday to catch my flight, and there was no one at the desk. I waited about 10 minutes, walking back and forth in front of the camera, and even stepped outside and back in thinking that might trigger a sensor. No one ever appeared, so I left my key cards and a note. It was a little bit disturbing that anyone could come in off the street and head off through the hotel without anyone noticing.
